I agree but the question can be solved with a little bit of common sense
Of the 3 ratios x must be the less in the mixture in terms of proportion
The first step says that adding water we do have the last ratio up to 25%
The second step says that adding even more water the middle ratio now is also 25%
At this point x, which was the less, adding water must be even more less
Among the answer choices B,D, and E clearly are too high
C x =1/3 over all is impossible because we do know that just two of them account for the 50% AND at the beginning the other two parts were already the most
The only possible choice is A
